its in German but the gist is that Brunner will be joining his old Swiss team on a game to game basis...

 

The NHL starts on 1 October - and Damien Brunner, one of Switzerland's best striker of all time, still stands there without a team. An extension of his contract with the Detroit Red Wings, he had refused. Now he could be on the EV train.

According to the "New Lucerne newspaper" it was possible that the 27-year-old marksman will wear in the upcoming season in the ECC dress.

Jakub Horak, the sporting director of Zug, says: "We do not plan to Brunner. But of course we would take him blowing a kiss. "

It would be conceivable an agreement from game to game, with the option that Brunner can get off at any time - but he should be find in the NHL. (gr)

Sad. He could have signed with the greatest team in the world (no bias) and *earned* a top six spot.

Instead, his NHL career looks like nothing more than an experiment right now. He is definitely NHL caliber, but overplayed his hand in a really bad year to do so. It's his agent's job to know that.

That's what makes it so much fun!

 

Also: Cleary maybe coming back = Brunner definitely not coming back, methinks.

Well make no mistake the NLA is not a pewee league far from it, it's actually really good sure not NHL level but still. Whatever he decides to do I wish him well hard to believe that teams like the Devils or Perds aren't trying to get him they need scoring and he provides that.

I'm surprised no one posted the latest on him but I suppose because most honestly don't care anymore. Anyways, Sheeny came out and said that Brunner is open to any team right now and is still looking for a job. Right now the basis is that he will start the season with EV zug and will hope to join the NHL at a later date during the season.

He played his cards all wrong. I may blame his agent but in reality Brunner didn't want to re up with Detroit and he still would've been on this magical train ride.


Ya, his agent whispered all the right things in his ear and he believed him. They ended being all the wrong things. I'm honestly surprised he hasn't fired him yet, should have taken one of the offers given to him, shot himself in the foot.

Damien Brunner: His reported asking price (two-to-three years at over $3 million per season) is why he remains unsigned. Brunner's agent, Neil Sheehy, recently claimed his client was willing to wait for the right deal. With training camps starting soon, Brunner's patience will be tested.

I think he will be SOL (Shat outta luck), any team that really has cap room also has an internal cap.

The teams that are willing to spend up to the cap for talent and a chance to win, already did so.

 

I don't see a team like FLA signing him in an effort to fill seats or make the post season. They are at the cap floor and that is where they like to be.

Unable to find a job in the NHL, forward Damien Brunner is considering a return to Europe.

The former Detroit Red Wing could sign a temporary agreement with EV Zug in his native country of Switzerland, according to Swiss newspaper Neue Luzerner Zeitung.

Brunner played for EV Zug for five seasons before joining the Red Wings last season.

The 27-year-old unrestricted free agent recorded 12 goals and 26 points in 44 games, adding nine points in 14 playoff games.

If he was smart, he would have fired his agent a long time ago.

So because he's not willing to take anything less than $3m per season, he may very well now go back to making well under $1m in Switzerland. What fantastic logic.

But he'd be living at home, play far less games, travel significantly less, play a less physical game and have less pressure on him. I think his asking price is a bit high, but not outrageously high, especially considering how he played in the playoffs. It isn't always all about the money...

Brunner played sheltered minutes in the playoffs. He disappeared for stretches and was never reliable defensively. He's a one-way player who contributed on the power play and suffered spells of brutal inconsistency. More, he has only one half of a season to his credit.

 

He doesn't merit $3m+.

Breaking: Damien Brunner won't play for #EVZ. Informed team this morning and said he won't risk injury because he's negotiating w/ NHL team.

The guy would be a perfect fit for Nashville or New Jersey, both are desperate for offense and youth he provides both. Hard for me to understand why they haven't signed him yet.
